  • [Question] World of color question...

    How does the FP system work? I know you obtain a fp and after that I have no clue. I've never seen it. Is the wait long?

    Would the picnic thing worth it? Or dinning? Do you go from dinner directly to the show?

    I did the WOC dining package at the Wine Country Trattoria... After the meal, you get your tickets. You just show up to the "reserved" section at WOC (maybe about 20 minutes before the show) and the CM will tell you where to go. We had a great spot!

      I was looking at dining at the Winf country trattoria... How was the food? Any recommendations?

        FP is more like an admission ticket. You get your ticket in the morning and then about an hour before show time you can go into the viewing area and stand to wait for the show. Unless you plan on eating at one of the places with a ticket attached or really want the picnic meal save the money.

          I've been seeing a lot of negative reviews about the picnic. What it really comes down to is, I don't want to wait an hour or so to watch the show. Just buying the picnic for a snackish type this would be ok just to get the ticket.

          Are the picnic tickets like dinning tickets? I've read that the dinning tickets (and i believe picnic tickets) are reserved seating so you just show up 20 minutes before the show?

            Basically the way the WOC FP works is you go to the FP area by the Grizzly River Run and you insert your ticket into the machine and it will give you a pass with the show time and a color on it. When you arrive at Paradise Pier for the show you find the section with the colored lights that match the color on your FP. Walk up to the Cast Member at that section, show them your FP, and pick a spot. It's a real simple process.

            If you skip the FP service you can either make a reservation at one of the restaurants offering a WOC package or you can try and get into one of the alternate viewing areas that don't require a FP.
            Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

                Not sure where you read that but regardless of how you get your ticket you will still need to get there early if you really want a good spot. I have only done the FP route but everything I have read is that you still have to get there 45 - 1 hour before show time.

                  no. Picnic tickets are just like the FP you get out of the machines by GRR.

                    Sorry, I don't recall where I read it, but the person said it was for the dinning at Wine country trattoria... Or is that incorrect as well?

                        So, a picnic doesn't even get you a reserved spot in yellow?


                        I think they planned the viewing area for WOC very poorly. Only the people who get a spot along a rail can see much of anything. We watched it twice on this trip and had tall people standing in front of us both times. I don't think we'll do it again unless we are early enough to get a rail spot.

                          The picnic gets you a FP for yellow. That is the reservation. You need to get there early to get a good spot in the section.

                            Yeah, that is what I'm surprised at. You don't get a special spot in Yellow even though you bought the overpriced picnic food.

                            Getting a fast pass for yellow used to be a good thing when there were 4 sections. Now that there are only 2, it isn't that special. I'm surprised that those who purchase picnics don't get more of a perk than that.

                              So it's just like getting any other FP . you walk up put ur ticket or pass in the machine and it spits out the ticket. then you come back at the time specified, it will tell you when you need to come back , usually it's like 20 to 30 min before show time becuase you line up in your color section as it is noted on your FP. The Wait for FP for WOC should not be long at all.]

                              Do you go directly from dinner to the show? nope..

                              IF you eat at CCT or WC for WOC then you get more perks. But that is the difference, the Picnics weren't suppose to be fancy

                                I've read through the links, and what are the perks of dinning instead of picnics?

                                So is the reserved viewing area that comes with a dinning package separate from normal Fp tickets?

                                  And that is understandable. But if I remember correctly, when they first began offering picnic meals for WOC it was a a bit of a perk, just less than the more expensive meals. It assured you that you would get a fp (they were running out quickly then) and that it would not be in the Green or Red sections. Now you have less of an incentive to buy a picnic meal because there are only 2 sections and you will still have to show up an hour ahead of the show to get a decent spot. Fast passes for WOC last longer through the day. It is not hard to get a fast pass and eat somewhere you like better for the same cost or less.

                                  I guess what I'm saying is, I don't see much of an incentive for people to get the picnic meal at this point.

                                    Thank you everyone for all the help. I ended up calling Disney dinning to make a reservation. They told me if I dine at CC or WCT you get something called proffered seating and you show up about 20 minutes before the show and are admitted to the reserved seating section.

                                      Just to clear up a couple thigns they told you.
                                      1. You don't get seating, you stand.
                                      2. You could show up 20 minutes prior, to any area with any ticket. However to get a great view, at 20 minutes before the show you need to be super lucky. Show up at least 45 for the "preferred" areas and 75 minutes for the regular areas if you want the best spots. The best spots are along the railings where you can see without needing to look through the back of people's heads. These best spots exist in all 4 sections. In the color sections that you can get free FPs for you can go right next to above or below the so called, "preferred" viewing.


                                      The real perk with the picnics, dinners and lunchs is the show tickets. At those things you are paying for the meal.

                                        Oh what a bummer. I just hate standing around to wait for a show :c???: Now that I know this I'm even wondering wither to just do the picnics instead.
